I found myself asking this question over and over again yesterday. Finally I announced it out loud.
"Yes. But only when writing and reading."
My partner stared. "Were you blabbering in your sleep?"
I shook my head, telling him.
He grinned. "That's why you love Linda Howard and stuff, right?"
I threw two pillows at him.
I was being romantic, then.
Yeah, yeah. I should stick to being romantic when writing and reading! For in real world, I prefer to ruin the romance!
